Food trucks are all the rage, but with so many roaming about, how do you find them? Here's the Frisco Kids' handy guide to Bay Area food truck locations.
SoMa Streat Food Park - the first permanent food truck pod, which opened in June. It's at 428 11th Street at Division in San Francisco. Different vendors every day, including (it's a big list) Bacon, Bacon, Yumsilog, We Sushi, Voodoo Van, the Rib Whip, the Dosa Republic, Senor Sisig, Missing Link, Kung Fu Tacos, and Cookie Time.
They have a covered, heated seating area and large screen projector TV for sporting events. Beer garden to come soon. It's open daily, from 11-3 and 5-10 p.m. on weekdays, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. weekends. On Friday and Saturdays it's open until 2 a.m. So there might be a little confusion by how that was all phrased, but I took it from their website. You've been warned.
